That's absolutely unbelievable. I did not realize he had been that unproductive. I know this post is a few days old, so he's up to 388 PA: 3 HRs, 8 2B, and one triple. 12 extra base hits on the entire year.

I'm okay with letting Dunn play 1st next year (who btw, has been hitting over .300 since June). They still need to make some changes. I would hope that whatever is going on in Alexei's life settles down soon. I would still rather trade him though and try and get younger in the infield. This offseason, they need to sign another outfielder, a right handed 8th inning guy, a catcher and another bat. That may be a bit much, but there are options out there.

Well, we need a 1B, 3B and CF.
We can get by with a defensive C (the premium on offensive catchers is really high) and a defensive SS.
We may have holes there depending on Dunn and Alexei.
I hope we fill at least 2 of those holes this year and the rest the following year.
I'd prefer to move Dunn, get a 1st baseman, and let Viciedo and De Aza rotate LF and DH and maybe some 1B.
